    Top ten favorite Halos

    I am sure this has been done. But I am also sure this list can change daily. I don't have any remix albums unfortunately but I do own all of the studio albums and have heard quite a few other halos. Keep in mind this is all opinion and I love every Halo I have heard. Don't look at this as worst to best but rather great to personal favorites. I feel I will get chewed out for my number 4 pick but it was how I got into NIN so leave me alone haha. 10 is my least favorite and 1 is my favorite.

    10. Fixed
    9. Year Zero
    8. Further Down The Spiral
    7. Pretty Hate Machine
    6. The Slip
    5. Broken
    4. With_Teeth
    3. Ghosts
    2. The Downward Spiral
    1. The Fragile

    I think The Slip is a great album and it grew on me the more I listened to it. No shame in that top ten. Thanks for sharing

    i can never stick firmly to the rules when it comes to lists, so here's my top 11-ish:

    11. halo 11 (jewel case version with original version of the song) / 10 (combined v1 & v2) / 16 - the perfect drug / further down the spiral / things falling apart (all tied)
    10. halo 12 - closure
    9. halo 9 (2-disc version) - closer to god
    8. halo 27 - the slip
    7. halo 19 (in 5.1) - with teeth
    6. halo 5 / 6 - broken / fixed (inseparable, to me)
    5. halo 17 (disc 2) - still
    4. halo 2 (remaster, not including get down, make love) - pretty hate machine
    3. halo 26 (DE...i'm a sucker for box sets, especially when they're full of amazing music) - ghosts i-iv
    2. halo 8 (in 5.1) - the downward spiral
    1. halo 14 (vinyl) - the fragile

    honorable mention to march of the pigs for having probably my favorite piece of cover artwork on a NIN release (up until the hesitation marks artwork was revealed).

    i really just don't like year zero aside from 3 or 4 songs.

    also, if i could include TR&AR soundtrack work in here, the girl with the dragon tattoo (vinyl box set) and the social network (in 5.1, which i'm currently listening to) would be tied with still for the #5 slot.

    I agree. I think PHM is very good, especially the 2010 remaster version. But I do prefer is later works more. Ghosts opened my eyes to a whole new world. Really fed my subconscious.

    This is tough one, but sure. I'll give it a go:

    1. The Fragile
    2. The Downward Spiral
    3. Year Zero
    4. Broken
    5. The Slip
    6. With Teeth
    7. Ghosts I-IV
    8. Further Down the Spiral (+ v2)
    9. Pretty Hate Machine
    10. And All That Could Have Been (+ Still)

    The gap between TF and TDS is very, very narrow, but as I love concept albums and rock operas, the former gets a slight edge because of its sheer density. The "prog rock" factor is also the reason I have YZ on a third place. Broken is just awesome and will always remain so, though I find it hasn't dated as well as TDS.

    The Slip and With Teeth probably mainly get high positions because I have fond memories of their respective releases. The latter, especially. The former scores a lot of points because the whole indie-thing Trent had going back then was cool as hell.

    Ghosts I-IV I have to acknowledge because it's such a massive collection of awesome, instrumental music. And again, what a way to use the newfound independence! FDTS is arguably their best remix album. It feels like a natural extension of TDS, but it's more explorational without ever becoming grating like Fixed does in a few spots.

    I only really got into PHM recently with the remaster. I like it, but my young age (well, relatively!) doesn't permit me to have much nostalgia about it. It's a good 80's industrial/synth pop album and the songs that are still performed deserve their status as classics, but it's not the NIN I love to the same degree as the above ones.

    AATCHB is still the perfect live Halo. It's a killer live video, a great live album and Still contains some of Trent's most beautiful compositions. AATCHB (the song) is just jaw-dropping.

    Finally, there's nothing here I really dislike, and the rankings are always subject to change. One day, I'll be in the mood for TDS. Another day, I'll fall madly in love with PHM. And judging by the songs I've heard, I also reckon Hesitation Marks will quickly find its way onto this list...

    Thank's for sharing!! I do think With_Teeth and The Slip are good albums. I love With_Teet's lyrics especially.

    Probably should have created this list about a week after HM is released to see how it ranks among Halos, that said here's my list:

    Top Ten Halos

    10_Things Falling Apart (Halo 16)
    "Dope beats and several Starfucker versions later, I'm ready for a NIN/Busta Rhymes collab"

    09_Year Zero (Halo 24)
    "DystopiNIN! Me, I'm not ever going to drop this album out of the Top Ten"

    08_Ghosts I-IV (Halo 26)
    "This collection of instrumental tracks is so good, it's scary. Boo!"

    07_Further Down the Spiral (Halo 10)
    "The Downward Spiral was when I feel in love, this was when I became obsessed"

    06_Pretty Hate Machine (Halo 2)
    "80's aggro-synth pop. Every song off this gem shines, especially live"

    05_Broken (Halo 5)
    "Human junk, just rock and so much win"

    04_With Teeth (Halo 19)
    "A Witha Teetha isa climbinga upa the lista"

    03_And All That Could Have Been/Still (Halo 17)
    "Still is the greatest non-album collection of material done by any band ever, there I said it"

    02_The Downward Spiral (Halo 8)
    "This takes me where I want to go. Love at first listen"

    01_The Fragile (Halo 14)
    "It's everything that's great about NIN in one album. A masterpiece of grand unbalanced proportions"
